    To the family:
    Please accept the condolences of the Dye family (Betty & Cliff Evans, David & Taunda Dye, Ples & Sandy Dye, and Dale & Lori Dye) of Marion, Ohio. Your mother is a precious soul and a dear family friend. Mom and dad thought the world of your parents and would occasionally make a journey back and forth to reconnect. It sure is hard to let them go no matter what age they may be. My wife Lori just lost her mother last week and her family had visiting hours at Turner’s last Wednesday. Her name was Ruth Whisler. Her obituary is on the Turner’s website. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family!
